Uncubed

By Betsy Scherzer, Senior Project Manager, Media & Emerging Technology

On November 12 and 13th, Uncubed unpacked an action-packed, two-day NYC tech startup event at the Altman Building in Manhattan.

During day one’s Scout, Uncubed hosted over 60 startup and technology companies hiring for developer, designer, and business roles. Upstairs, swag-filled booths creatively conveyed company identities, while downstairs, tech leaders shared wisdom during talks and panels. Day two’s Scale conference featured stories and advice from a variety of NYC startup founders, including case studies on how startups can collaborate successfully with large brands and tips on New York City’s many supportive startup resources. Happy hours, ping pong tournaments, paper napkin pitch contests, and a DJ’d afterparty helped keep things lively. Check out more event photos on our Flickr page.

As part of ongoing tech talent recruiting efforts, NYCEDC promoted Uncubed during this fall’s NYC Tech Talent Draft stops and helped subsidize transportation for regional students interested in attending the career fair. If you're a technical student seeking a startup job, be sure to browse available opportunities from participating startups on NYCEDC’s career opportunities website.
